Book Traveling Thursdays: 2016 Book to Movie Adaptation

A Monster Calls Spanish CoverBook Traveling Thursdays is a weekly feature created by Danielle’s Book Blog and The Girl Who Read Too Much that highlights book covers from around the world.

This week’s theme takes advantage of the increasing number of book to movie adaptations coming out in 2016, and while I would have loved to tackle Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, there just isn’t enough time to sort through all those covers. Also, I refuse to acknowledge that adaptation that shall not be named.

So instead, I chose Patrick Ness’ haunting A Monster Calls, which already has a trailer and everything — everything being Liam Neeson.

The movie won’t be out until October 14, 2016, so you’ll just have to spend your time reading the book before it hits the big screen.

An unflinching, darkly funny, and deeply moving story of a boy, his seriously ill mother, and an unexpected monstrous visitor.

At seven minutes past midnight, thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to find a monster outside his bedroom window. But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting– he’s been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. The monster in his backyard is different. It’s ancient. And wild. And it wants something from Conor. Something terrible and dangerous. It wants the truth. From the final idea of award-winning author Siobhan Dowd– whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself– Patrick Ness has spun a haunting and darkly funny novel of mischief, loss, and monsters both real and imagined.

  1. Oooh I hadn’t seen the new US cover! I like it better than the original. I still have to read this one before the film debuts!

    • I wish it didn’t have that “soon to be a major motion picture” nonsense. Apparently in some hardcovers if you take off the dust jacket the blue cover is underneath!

  2. I didn’t know this one had a movie coming out. It’s on my to read list, so it looks like I’ll be bumping that one up. Also, the covers to chose for the ugly ones are pretty ugly lol!!
